Every once in a while a tool or part comes along that's simple, inexpensive, easy for everyone to use, and makes a huge impact on the efficiency of the industry.For instance, many of us recognize the hugely impressive impact the slip-fix and kwik-cut made.There's not a company in this industry that doesn't use these items on a regular basis.And those actually doing the work would not want to return to a world without them.
Valve boxes are a necessary component in systems.They protect the integrity of the valves, the heart of the system.Though most people would never think of a valve box as a conservation item, their function helps permit the heart of the system to function correctly - thereby stopping the unnecessary waste of water through breakage and damaged valves.Every year, hundreds of thousands of the tops to these boxes need to be replaced for various reasons such as weather, theft, vandalism, pets, and lawn maintenance equipment.Without a top, that box is useless and is a hazard to not only the valves, but to the safety of anyone in the vicinity.
Suppliers can provide a product to their customers that is always the right product for the job without taking up shelf space to stock a variety of different lids from the historically continual shift in the market.
Contractors likewise can carry the one item on their trucks that they know will always work - takes no training of their crews, is inexpensive, and that they know will make their customers happy. Even homeowners can appreciate the simplicity and inexpensiveness of our product as it ends what can often be a seemingly endless search to find the correct lid to cure that safety hazard of a hole in their yard.
GroundTopper increases our industry's professionalism and efficiency at a cost that everyone can afford.In addition, every installer of the GroundTopper has the peace of mind in knowing they are doing just a little more to promote safety, conserve water, and save space in our landfills.
SAVES TIME - 3 seconds versus 15+ minutes.
Instead of guessing and hoping that one of the 15 lids floating around in the back of the truck will work next time, you can know that the GroundTopper will work every time. Sure, buying a whole new box may be cheaper, but the lid may not fit right. And digging the old box out and replacing it takes time to dig out, replace and then repair the landscape around it. All of these worries disappear with the GroundTopper, plus there is no digging, cut wires or borken pipe!
SAVES THE PLANET
Everyday we are having to be more and more conscience of what we do to impact our planet and our natural resources. You buy a whole box when you only need a lid, or you dig out a perfectly good box when only the lid needs replaced. Regardless, the outcome is generally the same - something that is non-biodegradable gets pitched in to a landfill somewhere that doesnít need to be there.
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION - Right every time!
Some lids kind of fit other boxes, some lids arenít even close. The next time someone steps on that lid, or a mower goes over, it pops out and you find yourself right back where you started. The GroundTopper fits right every time, every box. It even fits PVC, ADS, cement and sewer & drain. We have found nothing that fits these better than the GroundTopper.
How many of you carry a bin or a ring of miscellaneous valve box lids? Our crews used to carry 10 different lids at any given time. Sometimes one would fit, sometimes you just have to make due. With GroundTopper you know that the one lid that is on your trucks will fit - every time!
QUALITY PRODUCT MADE WITH YOU IN MIND!
Designed and developed by a 15 year contracting veteran to be contractor grade. We took feedback from other contractors to make sure that this was a quality product that we could be proud to put on the market. Made durable to last. Made tough enough to withstand the test of your crews - and time!
Can you imagine life in this industry without a kwik-cut or slip-fix? When these items first appeared on the market there were those out there who considered them unnecessary and overly priced. Think of how these product have made your life better. We were once told that contractors have nothing better to do with their time than dig out an old valve box to save a few pennies on the product cost. Whether itís making more money or spending added time with your family, we can think of plenty of good ways that you would like to spend that saved time!
